Peter Nelson, the architect, designed this home in 1985 to architecturally integrate the Victorian roots inherent in the Observatory Park neighborhood with his love of post-modern, contemporary design. He purposely angled the trapezoid exterior form of the home on the 6,230 square foot lot. He designed a “Modern Victorian” street-view with expansive windows and glass block walls to create ever changing light patterns throughout the home. A two-story gallery and hallway wall surprises upon entry and defines the interior connection of the home. Peter Nelson’s design of 2210 S. Milwaukee represents a definitive case against right angle thinking as he incorporated irregular shapes in most rooms.
